Windows XP x64 RRS feed

  • Question

  • It would really be nice if Steady State was compatible with Windows XP x64. It seems even with every new system available has a 64 bit capable processor the availability of software is still years behind.

  • Hi, thanks for the post. I'd like to inform you that Windows SteadyState works on 32-bit versions for the following operating systems: Windows XP Professional, Home Edition, and Tablet PC Edition are supported, as well as Windows Vista Business, Enterprise, Ultimate, Home Basic, Home Premium, and Starter. Currently, it does not support x64 version of OS. The main issue with x64 support is that it requires a 64-bit version of the Windows Disk Protection driver.  There is no 64-bit version of that, so regardless of any MSI hacking, it is not possible to enable Windows Disk Protection on an x64 version of Windows. Thank you.
